This service is pretty good : (they let you choose your license, and they'll even give you a free blog )

Not sure about Google. Seems that 4 days is not enough to verify a video for upload. Don't know if I'm doing something wrong or not.

The one I found quickly and easily is Rapid Share.

No need for an account or anything and uploading is immediate although viewing a video requires a little bit of "clicking".

you can send an email to yourself and then get a URL where your file will be hosted for 7 days..then share the URL...there is a limited numbe of downloads though but i dont know how many that is...

i don't know if you are strictly looking for commercial options, but i have a non-commercial server on which you can host video files. currently i have no automated way for the files to be uploaded, but i also do not have space and bandwidth limits (and no "x amount of days" limit currently setup). so if that sounds like something you can use, email me. joshone \at\ massrender \dot\ com
Give me something I can use, or get out of my way.

Here's a good one for those relying on their own hosting provider for video:

You can use a Coral cache of the files, as long as they're under 60mb, and you'll only have a bandwidth draw once per 48 hours.

It's free, and it's cool:

It's designed to minimize the "slashdot effect" on web servers, and allow people with home DSL or cable-based web hosting to meet demand, although it stabilizes bandwidth spikes for any type of hosting account. Basically, you just add to the end of your URL string and it works transparently.


instead of

Gonna be using this myself for the foreseeable future as I seriously underestimated the bandwidth demand for the challenges (for the record, I passed my 40gb/month quota in a single day)!

Hope this helps someone,

(apologies... I should've posted that other thread here)

As you know, part of this challenge requires video footage and other digital assets.

Considering the demand footage makes on personal webservers, I am offering to host all the shared assets for this challenge on my webspace, and I will gladly host any final videos as well. You won't have to worry about killing your bandwidth or all the other users wrangling with clumsy online file servers. Plus, this server is blazing fast.

Hosting Assets - Ideally, everything will be in once place where folks can check for updates instead of crawling through the forum. But if I just end up hosting for folks who don't have other hosting options, that is fine too. Anyway I can help... The only size limit is what you think others will be willing to download.

All you have to do to host your video with me is get me your video!
  • You can put it on your webspace and send me a link
  • You can use one of the many online file servers and send me the link.
  • If it is a non-video asset you can simply email me cmoschella@(SPAMGUARD)
  • My AIM handle is fumblepigskin, you can send it to me that way as well
  • I will notify you when the asset is online and will provide you a link, will usually be within hours of sending it to me from about 9AM to 8PM Eastern US time.
Assets will be hosted, at least, until the deadline for submissions.
Entries will be hosted for a month after the winners are posted.

Entries will be posted in the table here
Your username will be provided next to the link so that you may be properly credited for your work.

Any questions? You can PM me or respond in this thread.

Thanks for reading. Good luck to everyone participating!

Hey Gang,

I'd recommend using for hosting videos, it's youtube style flash videos, but the resolution and quality is better of youtube, so it's specially good for 3d stuff.

100mb file size limit and a maximum of 5 minutes.
I never had any trouble with this site, plus it lets you keep all your movies and images in one place.
